KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of newly discovered Napoleonic material, over 300 letters revealing one of the ""most pathetic periods of the imperial epic"" -- from the time of Marie Louise's arrival in France to the parting scenes at Fontainebleau. Of greater historical importance than general interest, for letters of 125 years ago seem stilted formal and dull. However, it is an essential item for the Napoleon fans and for those who find personal letters of historical characters interesting.
